One of Strauss' last essays, offering a very rich and condensed interpretation of Nietzsche's thought as a whole by way of a "Note on the Plan of Beyond Good & Evil".

Allan Bloom's analysis of the incoherence of Fukuyama's popular & popularized hypothesis after the fall of the Soviet Union and collapse of the Warsaw pact. Bloom shows that Fukuyama has synthesized two notions derived from the thought of Nietzsche and Hegel which contradict one another, forming a nonsensical, not to say highly unpolitical, picture of our situation. Fukuyama seems to celebrate and deplore the victory of liberal democracy in the same breath. There is also a brief discussion...

This is the famous "Restatement" that discusses most directly the meaning of the philosophic life as opposed to all other human forms of association and activity. It was written as a "reply" to the friendly criticisms of Alexander Kojeve, who was the thinker responsible for the popular fusion of Hegel, Nietzsche, & Heidegger, popularized by Sartre's "Marxism". Included in this copy is the original final paragraph, excluded from the American edition, addressing...
